'First Man' -- no surprise here -- falls short of ticket sales

- The Washington Times

"First Man," the movie that was supposed to showcase the historical greatness of the first man to walk the moon, Neil Armstrong -- but that omitted the triumphant and patriotic planting of the flag of record from the very country that made this greatness possible, America -- has suffered a bit of a red face with its opening weekend ticket sales. Sales were projected at $21 million but came in short, at $16.5 million.

Elizabeth Warren, the BoSox Bill Buckner pariah of politics

- The Washington Times

Elizabeth Warren, who took the puzzling step of announcing her DNA test results showing she was less Native American than most European Americans, has now come under fire from the Cherokee Nation. And how rightly so. Warren has become to politics what Bill Buckner has been to Red Sox fans for decades -- a pariah.

Portland mayor violating oath

The action or lack thereof of the mayor of the "City of Roses" with respect to the riotous behavior of Antifa — a fascist group if there ever were one — reminds one of that of former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who in 2015 allowed rioters their space to destroy property and endanger the citizenry ("Portland mayor stands by decision to allow antifa to block traffic, hassle motorists," Web, Oct. 14).

Christine Ford is a fibber

Justice Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford blatantly lied in answers to routine questions from the prosecutor, and these lies cast serious doubt about her truthfulness on any of the issues at hand ("'Speaking truth to power': Christine Blasey Ford nominated for UNC Distinguished Alumna Award," Web, Oct. 9).

Suppression of the saints

Andrew Brunson, the American Christian missionary imprisoned for two years in a Turkish prison, came home through the good offices of President Trump to an air of celebration shared by all Americans. But it hardly hides the reality that persecution of Christians has never been more widespread, or more severe.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Ship of Fools' by Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson, an experienced journalist and host of the highly successful Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," sees the election of Donald Trump as a gesture of defiance by those millions of productive Americans who built this country and made it run, "a gesture of contempt, a howl of rage, the end result of decades of selfish and unwise decisions made by selfish and unwise leaders. Happy countries don't elect Donald Trump president. Desperate ones do."

Even Joy Behar of 'The View' thinks Hillary Clinton's full of it

- The Washington Times

By now, everybody's heard about Hillary Clinton's denial that hubby Bill abused his presidential power by having an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and denial that he should have stepped aside. Shockingly, even Joy Behar of "The View," thinks Hillary's gone out on a lonely limb to defend her husband with this.

- The Washington Times

CNN's Don Lemon and CNN's Chris Cuomo engaged in some mean-spirited banter about Fox's Tucker Carlson during a recent televised spot, showing in 42 short seconds just why they're the worst of the worst -- why nobody with an ounce of intellect takes the mainstream media serious any more.
